Well even as a hardcore lifelong white metal fan i'd say resin. It's would be easier to clip off the pistol grips and they would be lighter for gluing to hands... Just my opinion but there you go...

Modelling bits for 3d printing

Ooo... those aircraft are very snazzy in the print, Malika! You've done an ace job with them!

I give another vote that resin is the better material for pistols: if the idea is to improve convenience (there are plenty of pistols out there, just attached to other things...) then resin is much easier to work with than metal. And much less need for pinning, etc..

Resin has my personal preference as well, especially for that type of bit. :)

Regarding the aircraft, I started working on another one...very early WIP...

Absolutely exceptionnal. Marvelous stuff.

And the new one looks good too. You manage to keep the spirit even by changing the general shape. Nice job.

Oo, some intriguing lines!

The second one shows why you should protect your fighting machines from evil influences: they sprout wings and bigger guns! :P

Very nice. The Rampager light tanks are a great proxy for death wheels- though maybe a little small for that? Will there be larger ones?

No plans on my behalve to make bigger ones since the Decimator is already out. I might be doing some Rampager variants though, but that'll depend on the sales.
